Symonds kicked out of  Brisbane bar

Brisbane: Australia's all-rounder Symonds is again in news for all the wrong reasons.

Queensland cricket authorities have confirmed that troubled all-rounder Andrew Symonds was asked to leave a Brisbane bar on Sunday night.

Report also alleges that Symonds broke a glass and was loud and boisterous while celebrating the end of the season with friends.

In a statement released by the Bulls, Queensland captain Chris Simpson, who was drinking with Symonds at the time of the alleged incident, has denied the all-rounder broke a glass.

Queensland Cricket chief executive Graham Dixon says there was nothing to indicate that what took place was outside acceptable team boundaries.

Symonds' management says his treatment is not about restricting him from enjoying his leisure time with family and friends.

His counsellor Deidre Anderson described his behaviour last night as an excellent example of "practical alcohol management."

Symonds is reportedly on a "last chance" warning from CA.

Symonds was suspended from all international matches by Cricket Australia (CA) in February following a string of alcohol-related incidents, and is currently on a rehabilitation program which includes counselling.
